I have been rather quiet these days because the horrible cold I have been suffering with has morphed into a sinus infection that leaked into my ears and became a middle ear infection. I cannot over-estimate the pain! Even worse…poor Hubby has the same infection and is at work this evening suffering beyond belief. I now know why a child with an ear infection screams at the top of their lungs. I have been tempted to do the same several times today. I didn’t because I think the sound would simply kill me.
My oldest child has been my little helper and for that I am beyond thankful. She makes a lovely cup of tea with lemon. She has also been bringing me hot towels to hold to the side of my head. My little one tries to help too…..her help does end with me almost in tears from the pain but hey….she’s trying.
One of my little ones teachers came to visit the farm today with her delightful Hubby. Yes, of course she offered to re-shedule due to my misery but I thought that the distraction would be nice and it was. They are chicken enthusiasts too! It was such a nice visit. The goats were almost well-behaved as were the hens. I say almost because let’s face it there was a goat butting a hen….and hens sneaking over the fence to reach my growing swiss chard. They have found it and mow it right down on me! So far I am not getting any chard. They are not just feathered thieves they are greedy too!
The garden is going so nicely for us. So far so good. I am loaded up with all sorts of tomato plants and so far not one cut worm has come to ruin things for us. We do have our fingers crossed.
Here are a few photos of the farm today….
I wish you all the best New Year EVER!!!!!! Health, happiness and peace…for us all.
One last thing, My dear friend Kamar gave birth today to a very healthy baby boy. I’m so happy for them. Congratulations Kamar!!!! There is nothing like giving birth for the first time…..makes you wonder how a second time ever happens (I am just kidding…sort of).
